    Looks just fine metaranger, it is casual jacket so as long as you wear it in that context it would be good. You can dress it up if need but probably not your preference. I for one am looking forward to the Augusto offerings in SS18 and will certainly dress it up a little bit more (i.e. odd pants, gabardine flat front).

    @lifeinabox Soooo good, it'll come to the point where you need just take it to the alteration tailor and save it for yourself. I've yet to take mine in but every time I see it hanging in the closet I smile.

    +1, my RLBL escape jacket (M65 inspired?) looks on better on me than Eidos ragosta...

    not sure why so much hate on something that we haven't actually seen how it fits on real people

    I like this jacket, but I'd probably be more inclined to get one of the similar jackets shown in the F/W 2018 Valstar collection.

    The new collection looks like a rehash of Kent & Curwen, which was a rehash of the Hilfiger designs

    Thank you @bry2000, @gettoasty and @Patrick R .

    Very much appreciate your opinions.

    I will be completely comfortable wearing it from now on!

    For insight on new direction, fit and prices take a look at the write up from WWD. FWIW I think the palette is beautiful and there are some really nice sweaters and outerwear pieces. I wish Simon the best.

    “Making the brand younger, clean, more modern and elevated, slighter closer to the Isaia brand but distinctively different” is the mission that Simon Spurr said he embraced when, in November, he joined Eidos, the Isaia company’s advanced contemporary firm.

    The New York-based, British designer — who has worked in the men’s wear departments of labels including Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren before launching his namesake brand — presented his first Eidos collection exclusively to WWD in the new Isaia headquarters here.

    In order to attract “more fashion customers” but at the same time target a broad audience in terms of age, Spurr designed a versatile collection that, unlike the quintessentially Italian Isaia tailored line, is rooted in an international aesthetic.

    In keeping with the British designer’s signature style, the lineup is focused on clean, lean silhouettes infused with a touch of “romanticism and sensitivity,” explained Spurr, who also highlighted the “wearability” of the collection.

    Featuring more tailoring than in previous seasons, the Eidos fall 2018 effort offers impeccable slim suits, including styles with double-breasted jackets reworked to accommodate six vertical buttons, instead of four. While the overall silhouette of the pants is straight and slim, Spurr also introduced double-pleated trousers with a tad more voluminous carrot shape.

    The Latin word “Otium,” which refers to “the idea of detaching from one’s daily business to engage in more artistic and intellectual pursuits,” appears on the pins decorating the jackets but also is embroidered on a cashmere sweatshirt layered under a blazer.

    The geometric patterns that punctuate the collection, including a graphic featuring the letter E drawn inside a circle and a square rendered on a warm wool poncho, refer to the work of artist Sol LeWitt, one of the founders of post-minimal art in the Sixties. Another pattern of diagonal half squares, splashed on a T-shirt and on the lining of a trenchcoat, is inspired by Marcel Breuer’s IBM building in Nice.

    While the collection was rooted in a classic men’s palette, Spurr introduced pops of bright color, including green and a pink shade, which were used for a quilted bomber jacket and a cozy knitted sweater, respectively.

    The new Eidos collection — which will be carried by select stores along with Isaia’s traditional partners such as Barneys New York, Mr Porter, Lane Crawford and Beymen — will retail at

    $1,395 to $1,995 for suits and between $895 and $1,695 for outerwear. Leather and shearling jackets will be sold at between $1,695 and $3,295, while denim will range from $295 to $425.
